Meaning? Will the svn=>git conversion do a user translation? Or not? If
yes, will there be a period where we ask for developers to register what
their github account is for mapping?

OK. But I guess after thinking about this more I'm more wondering what the
security, permissions, responsibilities, library release flow, etc. will
work? Do developers get to own the boost sublib repos, and hence manage
when and how their libraries make it into the releases? Or only the Boost
admins, and the developers have to ask the admins to update from clones?

Sorry if this is already documented somewhere, but I don't remember reading
it when I first read Beman's new docs.
